The scheme was delivered through an innovative partnership with Manchester City Council and Rowlinson Construction. In 2017 Tribe won the BREEAM Global award for a residential scheme.
Three biomass district heating systems were installed at the Tribe Apartments which keeps the fuel costs and CO2 low. The refurbishment also achieved an outstanding BREEAM award and won the BREEAM Global award for sustainability for a residential scheme in 2017.
